What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a new Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist in Joliet, IL who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to an amazing dentist near you. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Joliet area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
